WASHINGTON >> Honda says nearly a half-million sedans and minivans in the United States are involved in this week's recall to fix brake fluid leaks.

The action, announced earlier, involves the same issue that led Toyota to recall 1.5 million vehicles.

Honda says the recall affects 471,820 2005-2007 model year Acura RL sedans and Honda Odyssey minivans from the 2005 to early 2007 model year.

Honda says there have been no injuries or accidents tied to the problem.

The Japanese automaker told the government that certain types of brake fluid could affect the seal on the brake's master cylinder and lead to a leak.

If the leaks are left unattended, they could cause a spongy feeling in the brake pedal and adversely affect brake performance.
